Evening Gentlemen, i bought these pair of shoes yesterday and like the Badass I am, or wish I was, shone them vigorously, i had a mirror-like shine by the next evening, following this pattern, 1 layer of shoe cream, 3 layers of spit shines, and 1 spoon fire-shine(where i put kiwi in a spoon and heated up the bottom so that it melted), it looked amazing. I repeated this procedure about 4-5 times, all over the boot, not just the tip. However, when I went out for dinner, the polish on the creases on the shoe started cracking. Is this just because the shoes are new, or is there something i should be doing to prevent it from creasing. I don't know if this is important, but I didn't strip the polish in between shines. I've never had this problem before, for the other times I held Kiwi, I only polished the front tip of the boot or shoe, as the rest of the boot was not required to be shone in the military.
